A 4-year-old boy with posterior urethral valves and end stage kidney disease on peritoneal dialysis presented with high pressure non-compliant bladder with left ureterohydronephrosis. Inability to perform hemodialysis due to patient's weight exclusion, imposed the necessity to preserve peritoneal dialysis. A bilateral nephrectomy by retroperitoneoscopy with extraperitoneal augmentation ureterocystoplasty using left ureter and pelvis associated with continent diversion using right ureter as umbilical stoma was performed followed by kidney transplantation. An excellent outcome with voluntary voiding without CIC is reported eighteen months later. This treatment modality is the best option to manage End Stage Kidney Disease on peritoneal dialysis in those patients.
